Default Biodiesel at TDIFest

FYI:

The present rate of biodiesel at TDIFest is presently set at $3.22/gallon. We don't believe it will change in the next few days. Availability will be throughout the weekend with times/contact info for filling available on the tank.

Remember way back when there was only one person here burning the stuff Tom? My haven`t we come a long way? Almost mainstream I`d say. It`s a no brainer.

Thanks to Krappy Wagon and her BIG belly! She took on about 23.3 (in addition to the ULSD that was already there--at least 4 gals!) under the ventful eye of Mitch, + 10 gals. 2 GO! I saw some A4 owners in the line after us getting worried if they'd get any after our feeding frenzy .

Just got home and the needle had just gone below the full/18 mark. Not bad for 402 miles !

Having the tank on-site for the weekend was the HOT set up!

Jetter says: "It was actually pleasant counting cones at the auto cross with all the bio fumes! Ted, Greg, [& she] didn`t have to go on a respirator afterward!"




Great Fest!!!

Thanks everyone who bought bio at the Fest, especially the ones who braved the rain Friday and Saturday to fill up. If everyone would have waited until Sunday to try and fill up we would of run out of time before fuel. Speaking of which, you guys have no idea how releived I was when the tank ran out.

We also set the bar (and the record) for biodiesel sales at a TDIFest.

Thanks again to everyone, and especially to our supplier for his trust and generous 50 gallon donation for the raffle. Anyone in the area can go to them for all their fuel needs. www.worleyobetz.com

Big thanks to Worley Obetz for getting the B100 to the fest site and to the Sheraton for allowing it. Thanks to Mitch for pumping all that bio!

Worley & Obetz is my local supplier, and they deliver right to my house to fill up my 55 Gal drum. They always have a good product, with great service and at a fair price.

they deliver 55 gallons to your home? I called Worley and Obetz today to inquire about such a delivery and they told me....I need to buy at least 6-7000 gallons before they make a delivery out this way. (Wayne PA, Next to Valley Forge)

i really would love to have B100 available to me with out really having to drive the 45 miles to pick it all up.

Mitch, you did a wonderful job on that pump all weekend. Talk about a guy with dedication. His room was full of wet cloths on Friday and Saturday. On the bright side he probably got to talk to almost everyone there!

I think I just pulled my last pair of wet jeans out of the dryer this morning, but I was happy to do it. Also very glad for the couple of minutes of face time with everyone who stopped by for fuel. Between filling cars and the banquet on Sunday I think I met just about everyone that showed up for this years Fest. Even though I missed two of my three meals, the show & shine, the autocross, etc....

Had a great time and it was truly enjoyable to meet everyone. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
